All compatible phones get reliable coverage, privacy and security features that protect your personal information, and family features that help your family stay safer on their phones and build healthy digital habits. Only phones designed for Fi are built with network-switching technology. Unlocked phones compatible with T-Mobile's 5G network will have access to 5G on Fi.


Fi is in beta for iPhone. Bringing your iPhone to Fi requires some extra setup, like changing a few of your Settings. We'll walk you through it step-by-step, and our support team is always available if you need help. Currently, iPhone does not have network-switching technology, but you'll still get great coverage, including 5G for supported phones. Learn more


Fi works on most phones, but we always recommend checking your phone's compatibility before joining Fi. If your unlocked phone is compatible with T-Mobile's 5G network, you'll have access to 5G on Fi.


Find the smartphone you've been shopping for at Cricket Wireless, where we have great sales and everyday prices on popular phones. So whether you're a fan of Samsung smartphones or iPhones, Android or Windows phones, chances are the device you've been looking for is right here. Not sure what kind of smartphone to buy? Here are some things to consider:


As the busiest shopping season looms, Americans have several ways to shop online, but smartphones have become a top way to do so. Roughly three-quarters of U.S. adults (76%) say they ever buy things online using a smartphone, while a somewhat smaller share (69%) say they ever make purchases via desktop or laptop computers. Far fewer Americans (28%) report ever buying things online on a tablet.


The very best phones offer great cameras, the kind of performance you need to multitask and enough battery life to last the whole day. And we have our own web surfing battery test to put company's "all-day" endurance claims to the test.


In terms of performance, nothing can touch the Galaxy S23 Ultra among Android phones, thanks to its blazing Snapdragon 8 gen 2 for Galaxy processor. This chip beats the iPhone on graphics performance and is a blast for playing games. Another plus? The more than 13 hours of battery life we saw in our web surfing test.


Other highlights for the Galaxy S23 Ultra include smarter OneUI 5.1 features, including Bixby Text call for screening calls for you. And the display is now flatter for easier S Pen use, though we still don't think the panel needs to be curved. Note that there are complaints about S Pen Bluetooth connectivity issues, but hopefully that will be fixed with an update. Although we'd like to see faster charging overall the Samsung S23 Ultra is the best Android phone yet and easily one of the best phones overall.


Other highlights of the iPhone 14 Pro Max include a powerful A16 Bionic processor that smokes most Android phones and a powerful new 48MP camera that gives you the choice of brighter images or sharper resolution in ProRAW. See our ProRAW photo shoot to see the results. And the new Action Mode for video is super smooth and compelling. The best part is the battery life, as we saw over 13 hours in our testing, making this a total beast and worth the premium.


Video is another strong point for the iPhone 14 Pro, as you get a super smooth Action mode along with a sharper 4K Cinematic Mode. Add in a very clever replacement for the notch with Dynamic Island and an always-on display and you have one of the best phones you can buy. We just wish Apple offered faster charging, which likely won't happen until the iPhone 15 Pro.


Samsung improved the phone in other ways as well, boosting maximum brightness on the Galaxy S23's 6.1-inch display to 1,750 nits. You certainly won't have a difficult time viewing that screen outdoors in bright sunlight. We've also seen improvements to low-light photography, even if the Galaxy S23 still lags other top camera phones from Apple in an overall photo face-off. At a starting price of $799, the Galaxy S23 offers a good mix of premium features and a relatively low price for a flagship device.


When it comes to the iPhone SE (2022), you really are getting a lot for your money. At $429, the newest budget iPhone outperforms anything else in the price category and even puts the highest-end Android phones on their toes. With the same A15 Bionic that powers the iPhone 13, the SE is a little beast.


The iPhone SE (2022) offers a lot and is one of the best phones under $500. It trades blows with the Pixel 5a, meaning that iPhone buyers on a budget have two great options to look at. (The other being the $499 LTE-only iPhone 11.)


The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 lacks the processing oomph and power management features of the chipset inside the Galaxy S23 phones, but it's still a good performer among top Android flagships. With Samsung making few hardware changes to the cameras on the Galaxy S23, you're essentially getting the same camera experience as the newer, more expensive model. (The S22's 10MP selfie cam has been upgraded to 12MP on the S23.)


The main reason to get the Galaxy S22 is because you hate paying full price for phones. And at $699, the Galaxy S22 still has a lot to offer since just a few months ago, it was one of the best phones in Samsung's lineup.


Last but not least, we take the best phones out in the field to take photos outdoors, indoors and at night in low light to see how they perform versus their closest competitors. We take shots of landscapes, food, portraits and more, and also allow you to be the judge with side-by-side comparisons in our reviews.

The top grade in our program, Certified Refurbished smartphones are in pristine, like-new condition and have been professionally inspected, cleaned, and refurbished by the manufacturer or a manufacturer-approved vendor. Phones are guaranteed to be fully functional with 100% battery life.


The eBay Refurbished program offers a wide variety of phones, from the latest releases to previous favorites. Choosing from a wide selection of fully functional phones allows you to select the device that best fits your needs. Here are some of our top picks for different types of customers:


For Android users, we suggest a newer device like a Certified Refurbished Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G. The expansive 6.9-inch screen is perfect for gaming and supports a smooth 120Hz refresh rate for realistic playback. It has the greatest battery capacity of any phone in the S20 line, which is ideal for long sessions. The version with 16GB RAM and 512GB storage is best-suited for demanding games and should have you running the latest titles with ease. Certified Refurbished phones are backed by the manufacturer and are guaranteed to arrive in like-new condition.


If you lean towards Samsung phones, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G in Very Good Refurbished condition is a solid choice. The 32MP Selfie camera is great for showing off your latest look while three rear-facing cameras (12MP Ultra Wide, 12MP Wide-angle, and 8MP Telephoto) give you plenty of options to capture the perfect shot. Depending on frame rate, you can record video at 8K, 4K, 1080p, or 720p resolutions. In other words, this phone is a powerhouse for the creative set.


Kids punish their phones. We know this, and it's why a Samsung Galaxy A51 5G in Good Refurbished condition makes a lot of sense. The phone has plenty going for it: a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen, 128GB storage out of the box, four rear cameras, a 32MP front camera, and 5G connectivity. Good Refurbished condition phones will have noticeable blemishes, but these are cosmetic and do not affect functionality. The benefit for you is two-fold: a lower price and no worries about scratching or scuffing a brand-new phone. 041b061a72
